MasterFile imports native, PDF and image documents as well as other formats like audio into a case database. When you have native documents, if a PDF version exists, it’s imported simultaneously. In the case of webmail, Outlook, or native .MSG or .EML files, a PDF version is created on-the-fly and saved with the native file in MasterFile.
MasterFile’s Evidence Cruncher function lets you create PDFs of documents as needed in bulk. Searchable PDF is the standard format MasterFile uses for creating extracts, facts and so forth as well as for production and Bates stamping unless of course you are producing in native format.
Documents are loaded or saved from/to Windows directories by simple drag and drop or by using MasterFile’s bulk loading utilities.
MasterFile’s repository is unique because it stores, organizes and indexes everything related to a case or research project: images, transcripts, authorities, research, electronic evidence such as photographs, completed work-product, notes and markup, key extracts, facts, and chronologocal events as well as metadata such as author, date, document type, security information, etc.
Whether you’re dealing with eDiscovery, review, production or case analysis, you only need learn and manage one product in your firm.
